Factors affecting the life of a battery.

Explanation

  1. Corrosion:
  2. Corrosion in a battery mainly occurs when electrolyte is condensed due to gassing or overcharging. When corrosion occurs, the sulphuric acid corrodes and destroys not only terminals and connectors but it also affects the hold down straps and battery tray. Corrosion also increases resistance which in turn reduces the applied voltage.

  3. Improper level of electrolyte:
  4. The water in the electrolyte evaporates in some amount regularly during charging and discharging. This affects the level of electrolyte in the battery which results in loss of life of a battery...
